Mr. Trambnll'i Mil. which has already passed the House, and is now pending in the Senate, pro vides that in all cases where a citizen , of the United States, who had always remained loyal thereto, and did not give voluntary aid and comfort to the rebel lion, shall bring action to recover dama ges for injury to person or property, the action shall not be defeated on the ground that the offense was committed on Confederate authority. Both Houses have adjourned nntil Monday. George W. Branner, a phonographic reporter on the Evening Star, cut his throat to day. He had been for some weeks laboring under great nervous ex citement The Elective Franchise of the District will be taken up Monday and an effort made to put it to a vote. An amend ment is proposed coupling the enfran . chisement of negroes with the disfran chisement of those whites who comforted the rebellion. General Grant, up to seven o'clock this evening, has had no word confirm ing the Cincinnati Commerciat t dispatch from Brownsville. Gen. Sheridan was to be in Brownsville on Tuesday last If the report should be true, Grant says Sedgwick will be arrested and punished. It will be gratifying to bis numerous friends here to know that Mtjor M. W. Barr, late of the Appeal, bas been ap pointed Agent of the United States and European News Association at Washing ton, to compile the reports for the South ern Press. An official dispatch, dated Los Ange Jos, California, 4th, says that the Indian Superintendent, G. W. Sickley, and W. E. Everett, bis clerk, were murdered by the Kavajos and Apacbes on the IStb of November. Cincinnati, Dec. C. A special to the Commercial from Brownsville Nov. .10th, says Gen. Sedgwick, ota the 24th, made a formal demand for the immedi ate surrender" of Matamoros, which was acceded to, and Canalcs occupies the fortifications, while the American flag floats over the city. A sufficient nunfber of troops occupy the city, to render occu pation secure. Escobedo attacked Canales on the 27th, and a desperate battle ensued, lasting three hours, and resulting in the defeat of Escobedo, with a loss of CUO prisoners, including General Espcrora, Canales lost seventy five men. Escobedo lays his defeat to the interference of the United States troops. Another dispatch says: Escobedo at tacked Canales in Matamoros on Tuesday morning, at half past five o'clock, but - fell back after two hours desperate strug gling. One cause of bis defeat was, the occupation of Matamoros, some days ' before, by ft body of American troops, who relieved Canales of the care of the city, and left bira to use his force in de-' fending the fortifications. Escobedo in dignantly complains of the action of General Sedgwick. He expects rein forcements when he will renew the attack, meanwhile the American flag floats with in the beseiged city. New Orleans, Dec 6. Advices from the interior of the State say that the people, though disappointed in the crops, this season, the worst for twenty years, to the amount of land planted, are about to start early for the crop of 'C7. It is likely less land will be planted partly for want of reliable labor, and also for want of means but there will be more diversified farming. The great est quietude exists as to political mat ters, which are hardly alluded to, even by party papers. The colored organ here to-day again signifies its disapprobation of the dis franchisement of Southern rebels, and its want of confidence in Southern white Unionists, and instances Missouri and Tennessee as examples. A special to the Mobile Time from Montgomery, aays Governor Patton, in a special message to the Legislature of Alabama, to day, recommends the adop tion of the constitutional amendment, which caused considerable excitement The message was referred to the Com mittee on Federal Relations. Toronto, December 5. James Me Devitt was arrested here to-day for sedi tion lnneunue. He hails from Chicngo. Ho said if the Fenians were bung th city would be fired. Ho plead iutoxica tion. but was committed. , Mr. McKenzie is still working for the condemned prisoners. . He will probably apply for a writ of error. Montreal, December 5. The Gazette says that Seward's letter respecting the Fenian prisoners excited the deep anger of England,' which the President's mes sage will not allay. Toronto, December 5. The authori ties have information of the contempla' ted rescue of thoFcnians before the 30th consequently visitors are excluded, an the guard is largely increased. Ottawa, Dec. 6. The garrison bat teries are being recruited to full strength and put in efficient state. Navigation on the Ottawa river is closed. . Quebec, Dec. G. The British Aaicrp can Insurance Company, owing to the heavy losses at the late fires, have been bard pressed, but havo settled every thing satisfactorily. The Governor Gen cral leaves to-night for . Montreal, en route for England. Captain Maitland, of the Royal Engi neer Corps, broke his leg to-day white skating. Swettsburo, December 5. United States Consul General Averill arrived last night to attend the Fenian trials. He was received and treated with great consideration.

" I consider Chickering 1c Sons' Pianos be yond comparison, tbe best I have seen in America. " 8. Til ALHKivi, "Chair'n Jury on Musical Instruments." Among the chief points of excellence of tbe Chickering Finnan, of which speuk the re nowned artixU in their conyrntulutory testimo nials to the Messrs. Chickering, are tho greatest possible depth, ricbaexs and volume of tone, combined with a rare brilliancy, clearness and perfect evenness throughout the entire scale ; and, above all, a surprising duration of sound, the pure and sympathetic quulity of which never changes undor tbe most delioato or pow erful touch. During the past forty-three years this firm has manufactured , 30,000 PIANOS, In the construction of whioh they have intro duced every known and valuuble improvement. They have invariably beon selected and uied by all of the world's arknowleilpeii great artists who have visited this country professionally, both for private and publio use. THALBERG " I consider Chickering k Sons' Pianos, be yond comparison, the best I have ever icon in America. GOTTSCHALK. "I consider Chickering It Sons' Fianos su perior to any in the world. "They are unrivaled for their singing quali ties and for the harmonious roundness of their tone. There is a perfect homogeneity through out all the registers. The upper notes are re markable for a clearness and purity which I do not find in anyother instrument, while t lie bane is distinguished for power without harshness, and for a magnificent, sonority." WEIILI. " Tour Pianos are superior to any I have ever seen in this country or in Europe.
